Easter with Top Note Die

Each card was different in some small way, so I thought I would try and post all of them. I saw the top note die part as a bag and I changed it around to make it a card. The one with the quickutz chick on it is probably my favorite followed closely by the bunny made out of punches.

Here Comes Peter Cottontail

Time to think about Easter and spring. Our weather has been beautiful. I hope we keep the sunshine.

Here are the first two Easter projects. If you would like the pattern for the short carrots, I found it on Splitcoast Stampers. You can find it here.

Easter Punches

I adore making things out of my punches. I wish I was creative enough to come up with the ideas myself, but I'm not. I snag ideas from all over. Splitcoaster Stampers is my favorite spot to look, but I do check some great blogs. I will list some of my favorites.

Flowerbug's Inkspot

Blinkin, Thinkin, & Inkin

Now for the one I made yesterday. I am thinking Easter so I made a cute little bunny. I don't remember where I saw him. I also made the back view of him. Both are adorable. I don't know what I am going to do with him, but he is all made.

This is what I used making him....

Over the week

I finished my St. Patrick's Day cards up this week. I don't normal make St. Patrick's Day cards but I had a couple of ideas and it gave me a reason to stamp. I hope you like the cards.....

I love Riley so when I saw this stamp at a friends I just had to stamp out a couple to use. And the clover made out of hearts is similar to one I saw on Splitcoast Stampers using the scallop Spellbinder die set. The lower die cut is using a Quickut.

I also made another ribbon holder. This one is for my blue ribbon. All of it didn't fit in the container but it is a starting point. I don't know if I will make more of these or not. I think they are really cute and will help me get rid of all of the little stacks on ribbon on my table. Plus it will be easier to carry ribbon over to my friend's house.

I want to work on a couple of Easter projects this afternoon but before I do I have got to clean house. My husband worked nights this week so I didn't get a lot done because I didn't want to wake him up. Hopefully I will be back later with some more pictures.

My afternoon of stamping

I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. This is what I did manage to get completed.

This second picture is a ribbon holder I made out of a sour cream container. I saw it on the web somewhere. This one has all of my Valentine's ribbon in it. I will probably be making more of them.

Back again

I am sorry about not being around for the last few months. I got involved in all the holiday events and then after the new year, I just haven't felt like creating alot. But I am going to get back into the swing of things. To prove it, I am heading over to my stamping buddies' house to stamp the afternoon away. Hopefully when I get back I will have something to post.

In the meantime, here is my leprechan top note box. His nose doesn't show up real well in the front view, but you can see it from the side. It was fun to make....
